Orthopedic Injury Advice

Joseph A. Nagy, personal injury lawyer Edmonton, provides advice to victims of broken bones (orthopedic injuries).

I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced orthopedic injury lawyer, located in Edmonton and serving central and northern Alberta. I have handled many cases of broken bones (orthopedic injuries) including, hip fractures, knee fractures, shoulder fractures, ankle fractures, wrist fractures, foot fractures, and spinal fractures.

I often see orthopedic injuries in cases where a pedestrian was hit by a motor vehicle or was in a high speed highway crash. It is important to have an orthopedic specialist review all of your medical evidence and conduct an assessment to determine how your overall body function has been affected. Not every orthopedic specialist can do this. The specialist must be certified in using the American Medical Association Guidelines to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. I can make sure you have the orthopedic specialist you need to receive fair compensation for your orthopedic injury.

Call (780) 760-4878 or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss the specifics of your orthopedic injury. Free consultation. Free parking.

What Is an Orthopedic Injury?

Orthopedic injuries (broken bones) include hip fractures, knee fractures, shoulder fractures, ankle fractures, wrist fractures, foot fractures, and spinal fractures. Sometimes these broken bones are very serious and require surgical intervention by an orthopedic surgeon. Days or weeks of hospitalization are not uncommon.

Orthopedic injuries can lead to insurance compensation based on a loss of future income earning capacity, Joseph A. Nagy, personal injury lawyer Edmonton

Loss of Future Income Earning Capacity

A permanent clinical impairment can have a serious impact on future employability and a loss of future income or income earning capacity claim. A person can still be employed or earning the same income before an orthopedic injury as after an orthopedic injury and still have a valid claim for loss of future income earning capacity (LFIEC). LFIEC is defined by the courts to mean a “loss of a capital asset.”

In assessing damages for loss of capacity, consideration is given to the following factors:

  1. Whether you have been rendered less capable overall from earning income from all types of employment;
  2. Whether you are less marketable to potential employers;
  3. Whether you have lost the ability to take advantage of all job opportunities which might otherwise have been open to you;
  4. Whether you are less valuable to yourself as a person capable of earning income in a competitive labour market.

A LFIEC claim will require many of my team of experts to assess your medical condition and functional and vocational capacity. Courts and insurers will require specific proof before payment will be made to fix, help, or make up for your ability to earn future income. It can make a huge financial difference in the outcome of your claim.

Mr. Nagy helped me with my claim last year and managed to get me the best possible settlement (I was fighting against a very large and well-funded company with a dedicated legal department). Mr. Nagy handled my case with skill, determination and compassion. I would not be in my current state had it not been for his very prompt and professional response and actions on my behalf.

I highly recommended (and I still do!) him to my friends and colleagues who are or may be in a similar situation that I was in a year ago. I have nothing but high praise and respect for Mr. Nagy for taking on cases to protect and give the ‘little guys’ a fighting chance against the large and well-heeled entities of this world.
